If you are a java fiend like me, you’ll love the idea of making your own chocolate covered coffee beans! Perfect for a coffee-themed wedding! Give them as favors, or serve them up with gourmet coffee at your coffee bar.
You can experiment with different varieties of coffee beans. I used Starbucks French Roast Dark beans and Zavida Hazelnut Vanilla; if you prefer something less robust, go with milder beans.
1 cup of Whole Coffee Beans
12 oz package semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pour your chocolate chips into a double boiler.
Melt chocolate. Add coffee beans.
Stir coffee beans into chocolate until coated.
Remove each bean with a fork. A bit tedious, but worth the hassle.
Place beans on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Viola!
If you want to take a less tedious route, create coffee bean clusters by placing the melted mixture into paper candy cups.
Place in fridge for half an hour.
Is there a single coffee lover that could resist this?
